In the Guardian, one of the best dramas "of all time!!"
literate romantic dramedy that owed as much to Straw Dogs as it did to Four Weddings and a Funeral, Simon Nye's ode to love, mud and internecine eccentricity ran for two wonderfully idiosyncratic series. Dylan Moran and Four Weddings's Charlotte Coleman were perfectly cast as Ian and Lisa Lyons - shambolic newlyweds whose relocation to her parents' isolated village would place them in a fogbank of rhubarbing yokelism and unaccountable familial hostility. Trapped in Camberwick Black, their disarmingly steadfast relationship served as a surprisingly tender counterpoint to the snowballing unpleasantness of their new life. The series provided a bittersweet epitaph for the wonderful Coleman, whose horribly premature death in 2001 ensured it was left to the viewer's imagination as to whether the Lyonses would ever escape their exquisite rustic nightmare.
